Playlist for Jerry Treacy @ wfdu at

DJ name: Jerry Treacy
Bio: Jerry Treacy started working at WFDU in the early 90s as the host of Crash on the Levee, an eclectic and unique mix of weekend Music America. The program takes its title from the legendary “Basement Tapes” recordings from Bob Dylan and The Band, whose sessions were typical of the spontaneity and unbounded enthusiasm that Jerry has for the music. Although the listener can always count on hearing the latest singer-songwriters, the playlist covers the span of the folk, blues, country, cajun and zydeco genres from its beginnings to the latest releases. Jerry’s fate as a DJ was sealed during his early childhood days, spent playing 45’s on his Superman record player in a vain attempt to entertain family and friends. He also spent many a night listening to WABC-AM and WCBS-FM, during the days when stations played Aretha Franklin along with the Beatles and Johnny Cash. However, there was one early folk song that left the most indelible mark in Jerry’s mind – The Kingston Trio’s “Tom Dooley.” Here was this very stark imagery being created with powerful lyrics and three-part harmonies. It also struck him that the popular songs of that time were a combination of folk, rhythm and blues, rock and roll, standards...all of these various genres. It became the precursor for how Jerry would present Crash on the Levee.
